Pender Correctional Institution

Pender Correctional Institution has six dormitories, education buildings, recreation building, medical building, dining hall, operations center, administration building, programs building, gatehouse and chapel. Correction Enterprises converted the old dormitory and old recreation building on the original Pender Correctional Center to a sewing plant that manufactures uniforms for offenders, ferry workers and correctional officers. Many offenders are assigned to work on facility food service, facility maintenance, janitor services or assist staff. Cape Fear Community College works with the prison to provide vocational classes in light construction and diesel mechanics. Classes for adult education and preparation for the GED are available. Offenders who have development disabilities are assigned to the horticultural therapy program that trains them for landscaping and gardening jobs. Offenders may also be assigned to the Drug Alcohol Chemical Dependency Program (ACDP/Pender-AND90) unit. ACDP is a 12-week term of intensive treatment for alcohol and drug addiction in a residential facility at prisons. Other self-development, treatment and education programs are offered during evening hours and on weekends. Pender Correctional Institution was one of the first prisons to have teleconferencing capability used for management meetings, staff training and inmate education.
